License Renewal Time

Seattle’s ‘Skagit Project’ operates under a federal license that is up for renewal in April 2025. A relicensing process is underway for a 30 to 50 year renewal term. Relicensing involves a review of the safety, cost, environmental and cultural impacts of ongoing operation of the Skagit Project dams.

If you follow Skagit and Seattle news, also Washington Tribes and BC First Nations news you’re bound to hear more about Seattle City Light’s relicensing journey as the process unfolds in the coming months and years.
